Tony Mowbray has options ahead of local derby

Blackburn Rovers

Blackburn manager Tony Mowbray could have a near full-strength squad for the League One fixture against Blackpool.

Defender Ryan Nyambe (back) is a slight concern but Mowbray is optimistic he will be fine.

Long-term absentee Harry Chapman (hamstring) is now back training and is set to feature for the Under-23s on Monday ahead of a return to the squad.

Striker Dominic Samuel (ankle) is back to full fitness but has been out of form recently.

Blackpool boss Gary Bowyer will return to his old club and could have both Callum Cooke and Sean Longstaff available to him.

Cooke (heel) returned to training this week but the Seasiders are exercising caution given he has been out for a month.

Fellow on-loan midfielder Longstaff (hip) was back training last week and would have featured in the squad against Northampton last weekend had that game not been called off.

Mark Cullen (hamstring) is also training again, though he remains out along with Jim McAlister (bone bruising).
